Posted on October 30, 2017. Filed under: Advertising, Direct Sales Services and Opportunities, Direct Sales Tips, FindSalesRep Listings, FindSalesRep WALL, Get Results, How Does www.FindSalesRep.com Work?, How to Reach Your Target Audience |

The time to start getting ready for the holiday season is here and shoppers are already looking for what you’ve got. These days EVERYONE is shopping online Will they find you?

Waiting too long to get your business found online, where everyone does their shopping, puts you at a severe disadvantage — you need to be ready to capitalize on the increased traffic that comes between Halloween and New Years. Shoppers are ready and willing to click that buy-now button, so let’s get your business ready for the fast-approaching holiday season.

1. Analyze your previous holiday-season

Where did the majority of your holiday traffic that lead to new customers come from last year? Was it email marketing, social media, or online advertising? For most, the answer will be online advertising and there’s no better way to get found online by customers in your area than FindSalesRep.com

2. Take advantage of holiday-specific opportunities

You will want to have several places where you can highlight new products, special offers, coupons and holiday sales, and it’s important to get them up NOW. Your FindSalesRep Wall is the perfect place to post this kind of info. And it will make easy to them share your unique products and sales to your social media pages and links.

3. Start sending out your holiday email-marketing

Chances are, your company’s replicated website talks all about you company and the itss best selling products, but it’s most likely pretty generic and doesn’t highlight what’s so great about you. Your FindSalesRep listing can serve as your ‘landing page’. It can be the link that you share that allows you to tell your new customers exactly what so great about you and why they should purchase from you. So this year, when you are sending out emails to your past, present and future clients, include a link to your FindSalesRep Listing, and make sure when they get there they know that that they will be able to find everything they are looking for and that you are the best rep to help them with all their holiday shopping needs.

TIP: In your “ABOUT INFO”, on your FindSalesRep.com Listing, include a link to your ‘company website’. Make it easy for them to shop with you. For example: “Hi my name is Jessica, I have been with my company for 4 y

ears. I love their products because they really work. I can help you get the lowest price on everything my company offers. Order onl

ine at (www.YourWebsiteLink Here) and if you have questions or need help email or call me at…”

Learn How to Stay in Positive Motion 

Posted on June 16, 2015. Filed under: Beleif, Direct Sales Tips, Entrepreneurs ONLY, Get Results, Getting the Job Done, Goal Setting, How to Make It, Inspiration, Most Popular Companies, Network Marketing Made Easy, Problem Solving | Tags: , , , , , , |

6 Tips to Help You Stay in Positive Motion
1. Play to Win! – Do it all together!  Stay connected and talk often with the people on your direct Sales team.  That means your Upline, Downline and even people on the Sidelines. Also plug in to the Company calls and podcasts.  Playing with others will move you forward.
2. Set Goals and really try to reach them.  Keep track of your efforts.  Record ever step that you take.  
3. No negative conversations.  Shh. None!
4. Step UP! – Be accountable!  Find somebody that will check in on you and make sure that you are taking action.
5. Stay in Positive Motion!  Once you have achieved success, don’t stop.  Keep going and do it again
6. Don’t let the tough parts of the business slow you down.  If something falls apart.  Pick up the pieces and try something else.
 dream bigNumber six is where most people get stuck.  It’s easy to listen to the nay sayer when something bad happens.  Dream stealers are pretty powerful – if your willing to listen.  Dream Stealers are people that make you think that your dreams can not come true.  They make you question yourself and what you are doing.  You feel depleted after being around them for even a short amount of time.

 

Dream Believers are people that believe in you so much that they have dreams for you even before you have them for yourself. These people excite you and you learn new things just being around them a short amount of time.

So, what are the odds that any one of us will make our Dreams a Reality? Working from home sounds easy, but the reality is hours of time, hard work, persistence through adversity, and effort. It’s a lot of ups and downs.What makes people want to keep on with building their business? It could be the $ but for most of us it’s the reward and satisfaction of seeing people like ourselves, pull themselves up and achieve their dreams too! Living your dream means that you get to help others live their dreams!

 
Be a Dream Believer and watch your dreams come true!  May all Your Dreams come true!!!

Spring Cleaning For Your Buisness

Posted on March 24, 2015. Filed under: All Company Reviews: Breaking MLM, Direct Sales Leads, Direct Sales Services and Opportunities, Direct Sales Tips, Entrepreneurs ONLY, FindSalesRep Listings, FindSalesRep Treasure Chest, Get Results, Goal Setting, How To Do The Business, How To Grow Your Direct Sales Team, How to Make It, Inspiration, Network Marketing and Direct Sales News, Network Marketing Made Easy, New Marketers, Success n Network Marketing, Tips for your business, Vision Board | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

spring cleaning businessIf you’re ready to get motivated, improve your home business success, and boost your family income, it’s time to spring clean your business!

One hard push over a weekend does not make a sustainable business, but a good bout of spring cleaning can help you kick off a healthy business that will last for months and even years to come!

Step 1: Get Your Mind Right

What’s your overall goal? And…  more importantly, WHY are you going to work at this every day to meet your goal? Just striving for  a certain number in your bank account won’t inspire you to greatness, but if reaching that number means you can achieve a lifelong goal,  gain more freedom or have richer family life, you’re a lot more likely to keep doing the work that it will take to get there. Once you’ve figured out your “why,” make sure you keep it front of mind. A vision board is a great way to positively inspire yourself to achieve your personal breakthrough. It can be a dry erase board, a cork board, or a piece of poster board—just make sure it’s visible and tangible. Put inspiring quotes, photos, and any other images that will keep you focused on taking positive action.

Step 2: Know What You Are Putting In and Getting Out

A healthy business is all about risk AND reward, but financial gurus agree that what you put in to your business accounts for about 75 to 80 percent of your success. That means it’s time to clean out the those efforts that are not producing results and clean up your shopping list. Stopping waisting your time and your money.  What you spend to run your business can not exceed what you earning for very long.  That’s why choosing  the right way’s to promote your business is crucial.  Remember, what you do to promote your business fuels your success!

little to no promotion = little to no success

You wouldn’t fuel an airplane with diesel fuel from a rusty, old gas can and expect it to do its job, right? Give your business the kind of respect and provide it with the fuel it needs to perform at its peak. Make sure you’re getting exposure either face to face at events, fairs and or expos or on social media and don’t forget a healthy amount of advertising. Cut out empty ventures that consistently waste your time and energy. If it has not been profitable or has not grown your business, cut it out and look for other avenues that will lead you to your goals more efficiently.  The more good exposer or fuel you give your business, the more it will crave! Think snow ball effect. findsalesrep.com logo 2015And what about YOU?  You much be fully committed to achieve full attainment of your goals.  You’ve got to be all in.  If you’re not ready to do a week’s or even month’s worth of business prep every Monday that includes, emails, phone calls, meetings and other forms self promotion and then following it through out the week, you won’t succeed on your own.  That doesn’t mean it can’t be done.  Find a company that offers a complete, quality lead system that’s convenient to use and is affordable. After all, it won’t do you any good wishing and hoping for success if you don’t actually follow through and get in front of an audience.  FindSalesRep.com offers many advertising options from Basic to NationWide Listings.  We recommend checking out the NationWide pricing in our Treasure Chest at www.FindSalesRep.com/Treasure.  That’s where you will find our best offers and you will be able to compare different levels of exposure.  The NationWide listing is a great way to start maximizing your exposure while you build relationships with new customers from all a cross the country.  Listings are available in both the USA and CANADA.

Bonus points if you can get everyone on your team to get on board with what you are doing!

You’ll have moral support and increased chances for accountability!

Step 3: Get Moving

Whether you join the facebook revolution, attend all the wedding expos this spring, or just get out of your chair  to walk around the block and knock on a few businesses doors, making new connections will help you reach your goals. And, as a bonus, being around like minded, excited people it’s a mood-enhancer. The link between human connection and helping others and improved mood is pretty strong.

EXAMPLE: Usually when you smile at someone they smile back.  

Start a conversation and your whole day will change, typically for the better. 

And while different kinds of interactions have different benefits, the best business practice is the one you actually do! They call it practice because it is intended to be done over and over again over time.  Not just in short spurts, erratically, when you are in the mood. So, find ways of connecting with people that are in need or are looking for what you’ve got.  Look for things that fits into your schedule, fulfill you, and that you don’t keep making excuses to cancel.  Find ways of producing prospect that you will actually do and DO them.

Step 4: Articulate and SHARE Your Goals

One of the best ways to reach your goals is to make them SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely). “make more money” or “grow your business” are goals that are too vague. How do you know if you’ve succeeded? Once you’ve identified the specific business goals that you want to achieve, make sure they’re SMART.  Then… it’s time to share them. Though it may be tempting to keep your journey to yourself until you’ve completed it, successful entrepreneurs say you should share early and often.  You’re only keeping them a secret if they are not sincere.

“Research performed by Dr. Gail Matthews, a clinical psychologist,

found that participants who wrote down their goals

achieved significantly more than those who only thought about their goals.

And, those who wrote down action commitments (in addition to their goals)

were even more likely to reach their goals.”

So what are you waiting for? Find a friend, team mate or family member to be your business accountability partner!  Tell them what you want to achieve, when you want to have succeed and how you are planning to do it.  Who knows, they probably will be inspired to join you.

11 Things You Can Do To Achieve More Today

Posted on February 25, 2015. Filed under: Attitude, Beleif, Build It Make It Create It, Direct Sales Tips, Entrepreneurs ONLY, Get Your Energy Flowing, Goal Setting, How To Do The Business, How to Make It, Inspiration, Making It In Net Work Marketing, Problem Solving, Success n Network Marketing, Tips for your business, Vision Board, What if you could | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

do something

It can be overwhelming.  Being your own boss will offer you moments of self doubt, crushing stress and frustration.  BUT…  but there’s also excitement, adventures, new possibilities and a whole lot of clapping and smiling when you achieve success.

You may not be able to quit your job today or follow every direct sales lead that comes your way, but every day contains within it countless opportunities, all waiting to see what you will do.

Theses are the choices that will make all the difference in your business.  They are the things that will determine your current level of success and your likelihood of you achieving your goals in the future.

So, WHAT IF?  What if you make some changes today and stick to them?  WHAT IF?  

Sometimes even the smallest shift in thinking or doing can create the biggest opportunities.

To get started:

1. Stop thinking and stopping there.  Getting a good idea is NOT enough. Write down all of your ideas, right when you have them.  Then, put them on your calendar and make them happen.

2. Challenge your beliefs about what you can and can’t do. You are better than you think you are.  Yeah, you really are that good!

3. Challenge your ideas about how things work. Sometimes when you decide how things should be you limit your ability to see how they CAN BE.  Take a look at how others ‘do the business’ and see which things you think you could try to adopt in to your day to day business plans.

4. Have a vision, a dream, a goal.  Write down your goals.  “I will… by this date…”  Then create a vision board and put on it those things that will be visible you when you achieve your goals.  (Directions for creating a vision board can be found in the search on this blog.)

5. Look for opportunities in every failure.  Avoid the victim mentality, everything that happens, whether to-you or by-you is an opportunity. Yes, EVERYTHING!  Change your attitude and start LOOKING for the opportunity in EVERYTHING.

6. Remove something from your life that doesn’t serve you.  Make room for something better and new.   These can be small things, like a cluttered work space or big things like a business partner that is holding you back.  Either way, take the time to evaluate those things that you let in to your business and make room for new things that will encourage growth.

7. Commit to something.  You know those things that you always say you’ll do but you never seem to start start—start them.  Go, right now, GO!  Write it on your calendar and figure out how to make it happen.  Take the first step right now.

8. DON’T think about what you DON’t want. DO think about what you DO want. Shift your energy from complaining, worrying and waisting time to doing, taking action and achieving.

9. Replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Positive energy creates positive results.  Enough said.

10. Self Improvement is a sign of growth and intelligence.  Anytime you improve your habits, you pave the path for personal excellence.

11. Forgive your self and others.  Let go of grudges. Removing barrier opens doors.

Think about it, these are people that you are going to have direct, personal contact and they might even turn in to potential customers and who knows, you might become their customer too, or maybe you will exchange referrals.

5 Ways To Protect Your Small Business From Fraud

Posted on January 11, 2015. Filed under: Direct Sales Tips, How To Do The Business, New Marketers, Problem Solving, Success n Network Marketing, Tips for your business, Trades and Swaps | Tags: , , , , , , , |

1.  Put all sales through your company provided website. Legitimate buyers understand that you want to help them get the products that they are looking for and are happy to take your advise and shop directly on your company provided website.

get paid first2.  Obtain a buyers name, telephone number and mailing address, before you transact business. Some con artists give out false names, telephone numbers, addresses, and other info. Verify the accuracy of these things by ‘googling” those persons that you do not already know.

3.  Before you send any products, get the payment.  NEVER send the product first.   Legitimate retail business owners, like yourself,  ALWAYS get paid first.  You are not in the service industry.  Think about your company.  They sell retail products, just like the brick and mortar shops and stores that you walk in to everyday. Would they ever send you product first and then wait for you to pay them?  NO NEVER!  Before you send products, ask yourself a simple question. “What guarantee do I really have that this person will send money in the manner we agreed upon?”

4.  Don’t take risks when a new buyer entices you by offering to help you grow your business.  Always take your time making a decision. Legitimate business partners won’t pressure you to make a snap decision.

5.  If you are trading’ or ‘swapping’ meet in person and make the exchange at the same time.  NEVER be the first and wait for your part of the bargain to arrive latter.  Authentic buyer will understand and respect your need safe transaction.

Targeting the Ideal Customer

Posted on September 30, 2014. Filed under: Build It Make It Create It, Direct Sales Tips, Entrepreneurs ONLY, Expand Beyond Your Warm Market, Get in Front of an Ideal Audience, How To Do The Business, How To Grow Your Direct Sales Team, How to Make It, How to Reach Your Target Audience, Making It In Net Work Marketing, Network Marketing Made Easy, Reach Your Target Audience, Targeting | Tags: , , , , , , |

How do you target the ideal customer?

To successfully introduce new customers to you company and the products you offer,  it’s essential to focus exclusively on the prospects you believe are most likely to purchase from you.

WHO are they?  We asked a few of our favorite independent direct sales reps:

-Your ideal customer may be prospects who are currently buying something similar and will appreciate the additional features your new product or service provides.

-Your best prospects have a perceived need for what you offer, can afford to buy it and have demonstrated a willingness to do so–probably by purchasing from your competition. Bear in mind, it’s always easier to fill a need than to create one.

Share the benefits and features that your prospective customers will value most.  The bottom line is that working with you and your company should be unique and meet the needs and desires of your best prospects.  Show then how you can make that happen.

How?

Will you market online, via catalog or by archery target? Generally,  a multi-channel marketing tactic will help you achieve the greatest success.

Why?

Customers who can shop when and however they like tend to spend more and shop more often. Suppose your strategy is to market a weight loss product to people who can’t afford gym memberships or high-priced home equipment. You might choose traditional face to face/home party direct marketing plus a website as your primary channels, and then online ads and e-mail solicitations that link to your website.  These are all great ideas, but no one action alone is going to give you the results that you are looking for.  Aim to combined all of them.

When?

For startup entrepreneurs, the need to constantly tinker with the business never ends. “You have always got to be thinking about how you can tweak whatever you have to make it even better.”

If you feel like you have too much going on, stop and just focus on just one at a time. Try spending time on one project per day and see how much you accomplish.

Trending Topics in Direct Sales

Posted on September 18, 2014. Filed under: Build It Make It Create It, Direct Sales Tips, Entrepreneurs ONLY, Get Results, Get Your Energy Flowing, Getting the Job Done, How To Do The Business, How To Grow Your Direct Sales Team, How to Make It, Making It In Net Work Marketing, Network Marketing Made Easy, Problem Solving, Success n Network Marketing, Tips for your business | Tags: , , , , , , |

Direct selling is certainly a classic sales method and given the reach of the Internet in the business world, the approach to direct selling has a larger reach than ever before.

TOPIC: The debate is on!!! Coffee shop or online blog? Door to door or email contact list? Typical meeting or online chat? How’s a poor marketer to decide? It used to be that “Face Time” with prospects through all stages of a sales cycle was the only way. It was was tried and true, but with all the gadgets used today, “Shopper” no longer seem to value the antiquated ritual.  It seems that “Face Time” may no longer be necessary at all.

More often than not, sales go through – online without any direct contact at all. Independent Sales reps can now use the Web to conduct product demonstrations, hold multi-person sales trending topics thurspresentations, all kinds of things that help them connect with their audience.

Here’s just an example:
For many top recruiters, email has replaced the phone as a primary method of reaching out to contact new prospective customers for the first time. The traditionalist would say this selling tactic is bad even though it brings down the cost of doing business and takes less time, but sales don’t lie. TODAY’S TOP SELLERS IN EVERY DIRECT SALES COMPANY are the ones with a strong online presence and a long email contact list.

PROBLEM: There is one pit fall that online marketers face -ISOLATION- working in isolation tends to make reps less productive than if they work in groups, even small ones, where they can feed off each others momentum.

SOLUTION: Form a team that can share sales strategies. The best ones are social clubs for entrepreneurs and sales professionals that to help them learn how to get good at sales and to have fun doing it. There should be no sales “gurus” or “experts” in these groups. Let every leader show off and share their smart. Ambitious people will have a lot to share and will help the whole group work hard to reach their goals. Having FUN is what will keep the motivation engine revving.
